Acadian Monitoring Services receives UL 2050 designation

Saturday, August 1, 2009

LAFAYETTE, La.--Acadian Monitoring Services, based here, announced June 11 it had received the highest designation for central station monitoring from Underwriters Laboratories. The 2050 National Industrial Security System Monitoring certificate specifies Acadian meets the standards required to monitor facilities operated by government contractors and integrators who are engaged in security system installations for which a National Industrial Security System certificate has been issued by the Department of Homeland Security or Secret Service.

Only nine of the more than 3,000 UL listed centrals in the United States have chosen to undergo 2050 certification.

According to Acadian operations manager Nick Bearb, UL 2050 speaks loudly to Acadian’s current and future customers. “We wanted our dealers to know ... that we will put every tool in the shed, so to speak, that we can in order to give them the ability to do business as they need without working with their hands tied behind their backs,” Bearb said. “If they want to go after government contracts, I didn’t want our central station to be somewhat of a limiter to their ability to perform.”
